It is with feelings of deep sorrow that we feel called upon to chronicle the death of Mrs. Fannie Goldwire, wife of the Rev. Mr. Goldwire, of this county.  She died at her home three miles above this place, on Tuesday night, the 16th inst., after a brief illness.  She commenced throwing up, and continued to do so for several hours, when, under medical treatment the disease was checked, and she dozed off into a quiet sleep; as soon as she awoke the disease returned and was again checked, and again she dozed off to sleep from which she never awoke.  As the little child quietly and sweetly falls asleep in its mother’s arms, in like manner she passed away from earthly scenes to the bosom of her Saviour –without a struggle, without a groan, without a sigh, her spirit left its tenement of clay and soared to worlds on high. – Though in the very prime of life, for scarcely had she reached its meridian, she had, nevertheless, been a consistent and pious member of the Baptist Church for many years.  We tender our heartfelt condolence to the grief-stricken and bereaved husband and step-children in their sore affliction, but rejoice with them in the blessed assurance that “they mourn not as those without hope.” [Resolutions of Respect by the “Calico Club”, an organization devoted to simplicity in women’s clothing, can be found on page 3 of the Feb. 1, 1872 issue.]
